Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandpappy's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. Michigan sucks. I also hate the SEC (especially effing Gator fans). Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Chicken/steak burrito. Light beans, extra cheese, salsa, jalapenos and sour cream. Bag of chips. Cup of queso.

He has that home run capability that will force opposing defensive coordinators to have to plan for him. Very few players have that kind of an effect on the game. He may only have 50-60 catches a season but he'll score 9+ TDs a year while also stretching defenses. Any offensive coordinator with half a brain will want him.

Matta is oversigning!!!1!

He's anticipating someone to leave otherwise he wouldn't be looking. If Loving doesn't get his act together it might be him.

A "Gray Box" is a euphemism for a new player commitment. It's also reference to the old 11W page that featured a framed gray box around a story any time there was big news, good (5* commitment) or bad (Tressel resigning). Since the new site is all gray the "box" is now a graphic (along with the Boom!) you see at the top of any commitment story.

Crystal Balls are the 24/7 site recruiting predictions from recruiting writers and pundits.

As for a gray cloud, did you have burritos last night?

I never get too optimistic about beating any opponent. The last time I was too overconfident going into a game was the 1998 Sparty game and we all know how that turned out. However, I will say this about VT and their fans. If they think OSU is the same team they played a year ago they are in for one hell of a rude awakening. VT's only real hope is OSU regressing horrendously from the Oregon game. I cannot see an Urban Meyer coached team regressing that badly. Not saying that as a homer, I'm saying that from a logical standpoint.

Look out for Temple!

Those starts will be HUGE when we find ourselves in a tight game on the road with all the marbles on the line. I'll feel a LOT better about our chances.

I've said this a few other times but I honestly believe Braxton was unfairly held accountable of our defense's shortcomings in 2013. He was blamed for not scoring on every single drive to make up for the fact that the defense was the problem. OSU averaged 40+ points a game in 2013 with him as QB. If our defense is anywhere close to decent in 2013 Brax wins a national title and we're having a different conversation about him. Yeah Brax isn't the most accurate passer and JT is more accurate but JT is a rarity. Healthy Brax is an amazing QB and fun to watch.

I think the difference between this Boca Raton camp and what Franklin and others are doing is the fact  a few OSU coaches are helping with FAU's camp where Franklin and Harbaugh will have full un-affiliated PSU/TTUN camps outside their state. That to me is a huge difference. You can have guest coaches at your camp. Everyone does that. But to have a full satellite camp sounds funny to me. Maybe I am in the minority with that thought.

And they still use the Kings English and don't care where your fingers have been.

I laughed and cringed at the same time reading that.

I remember that. Got the distinct impression the dude was in the middle of a major psychotic episode. No troll could be that convincing.

That was funny lol

Yeah, that was the first thing I thought. Subterfuge.

I'm not sure if Jesse would've run a sub-9.0 100m dash but if anyone would've been close to that it would have been him. Bolt's current 100m WR is 9.58 and that's with all the training and facilities he has to use today. Jesse ran the 10.2 100m back when there was nothing but your talent that separated you from the pack. It's easily plausible to think Jesse could've at least run a 9.5 100m today if given a few years of training on modern tracks and using modern facilities and training regimens.
